What is your thoughts on remembering Patrick Roy's snub for the '02 Olympic team. We all remember his "reasons" he gave for not going to the Olympics, he wanted to rest up for the playoffs and he wanted to see his son play in a peewee Hockey tourny in Quebec. By the way in the playoffs Roy had one of the worst Game 7s ever by a goalie against Detroit in a 7-0 shellacking. So there goes THAT theory! My opinion on this was similar to everyone else's. Roy wasnt among the first 8 original selections. But no one in their right mind didnt have him on the 23 selections. It most likely would have been Roy, Brodeur and Joseph. My thoughts are that Roy wasnt guaranteed the #1 goalie spot at the time, nor should he have since Brodeur was just as good at the time. This of course hurt his BIG ego, but what Roy didnt think about was that since he was arguably the best goalie in the world he would have at least had the chance to earn his #1 spot in that first game against the Swedes. Also I remember when the first part of that team was announced, a name that was missing was Al MacInnis. He wasnt part of the original 8 named, namely because of an eye injury at the time, but no one ever thought he wouldnt be on the team. Even Gretzky said at that press conference: "Al MacInnis fans need not worry!" I remember that quote. So if MacInnis was a lock wouldnt Roy have been. And you didnt see MacInnis sulk and then withdraw his name in November of 2001 just in case he wasnt named. Maybe Roy should have thought about that. Well we did fine without him thats what I say.
